OPI Manicure/Pedicure Cucumber Scrub

I really love OPI's Manicure/Pedicure line, I've used two of the scrubs before, Tropical Citrus (reviewed here), and Chamomile Mint (reviewed here). My favourite so far has been Tropical Citrus, I think that it smells just like a pina colada, which I love! :) I also mentioned that I wanted to try out the Cucumber scent, and I've been using that one for a few weeks now!

OPI's Manicure/Pedicure Cucumber Scrub* has quickly become a favourite of mine. I already knew that I would love the formula, since I've used it before, but I also love the scent. I do find that the Cucumber Scrub has a lighter scent than the Tropical Citrus scrub, it's a bit less intense. The cucumber scent is that recognizable scent that we all associate with cucumbers, although I don't think actual cucumbers smell that way! Do cucumbers even have a scent?

I keep this in the shower, and I use it daily. This formula is meant to be used on both hands and feet, but I generally just use it on my feet. The bottle also says to apply to towel-dried feet, but I just use it in the shower when my feet are wet, and I think it works just fine that way! I think a lot of girls neglect giving themselves/getting pedicures in the winter, but it's important to keep up with them. And this is such an easy product to use at home that keeps everything looking pretty!

I find this formula to be quite thick and grainy, but it makes for a great exfoliator, while still being gentle. I highly recommend these scrubs, they are my absolute favourite for pedicures. If you were to only try one scent, I would have to say give the Tropical Citrus one a try, if you like sweeter, more summery scents. I have another bottle of that one waiting for me :) You only need a little bit of this scrub, so a 250 ml bottle should last you months. You can buy the Manicure/Pedicure line most places that OPI is sold. I know that my local Trade Secrets carries the line.

What are your favourite scrubs? Have you tried out the Manicure/Pedicure line? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!


  1. I haven't tried this line, I tend to make my own scrubs - that way I have control over what goes into them and the scents.
